  1. excellent work!!! Well drawn image!! Keep up the great work!!!
  2. Thank you for the comments!! I used an F-14D Tomcat picture as the lead information and data...I cannot figures out your point but i suppose maybe the picture was a bit distored....!! Thanks anyway!! If i locate that particular photo, i will post it here!!
  3. and this how it eventually became as it was used in the kit!!
  4. This is a painting intented for box art purpose for Hobby Boss models! However, Hobby Boss changed the markings and ommited the distant aircraft when was finally used!! I wanted to show the original work here though! Best wishes to all for the new year!!! Health to all....!!!!!
  5. I painted this box art of this kit and i use photos of the real machine as a lead!! Now....why Hobby Boss did not include the fairings around the exhaust pipes....i do not know!! I suppose the kit designer can answer that!!! Thanks for the comments....all the best for the new year!!!
  6. Hey,,,,this is trully a very good work!!! Ecxellent Noelbarnes!!!!!
  7. He was very very good at all subjects!!!!!!!!
  8. One of his works at Gava collection....
  9. Very good choice!!! I have the privileage to contact Roy Huxley in e-mail, and i feel very thrilled about it cos he is one of my favourite box artist!! I think, he and Roy Cross, are the magicians in a way...making fantastic illustration that made our fantasies go wild!! I manage to have in my bookshelf, 3 matchbox model Catalogues, and sure i get a lot of inspiration by watching the magic box art images in it!!!
  10. Thanks again for the comments and information!! As i mentioned, i hope one of the guys who built the model, to share information here to let us know about the kit's issues!! If there are, and wich ones are!!! As for the Global economy....we cannot talk this here i suppose!! If you were close by, i would treat bear or any other drink you like, and can talk at any subject you wish!!! Have a nice day!!!
  11. Thanks Sgt Squarehead...i know that, i just wanted to help in any way, from my perspective for some issues raised by other Modellers here! I have not seen the kit, so i do not have a full picture!! All the best!!
  12. And here is the picture i used for reference to the box art image...maybe it can help to clear the nose shepe issue....
  13. Dear Tony t, hello!! I was not refering to you, i meant in general, but i really respect your very informative answer!! Also you raised the fact that under really difficult Economiy crisis in Greece these years, it is a great effort a small company to try and release some very interesting kits out there for some,,,modeller well informed guys!! I am sure your jadging abilities is better than mine as far as the model is concern...and also thank you for the kind remarques about my work in kit's box art!! I also like to inform, that the guy who is responsible in making ans designing this kit, has taken numerous awards in IPMS UK Nationals, and i think he also took once the best of the show!! That does not mean that he is flaw less of perfect...but he's not somebody who just took the job to design the kit out of the blue!! I hope he, or another guy from Grand Models to comment here as well for more information!!! Have a nice day!!! Kostas Kavvathias
  14. Many bad comments i see about this model!! I was involved in making the box art, but i also informed the other guys who are responsible about the making of the model itself to add here their views and to answer to those ''comments'', cos a couple of them are not so constructive... maybe even hostile instead!!! .As for beeing a resin kit...i quess this is a problem for a lot of modellers, but, to set a model company with injection machines needs a mountain of money!! A few guys who built this kit said it was a good one!! As i mentioned i was only involved in the box art!! I suppose it will be some answers to those...unhappy with this effort!!!
  15. It looks like it was washed in chlorioum solvent!! I have a better image but sadly i do not know how to upload it here!!
